I was glad to find what I thought it'd be a very original place. The place's smell is hard to get by and the food was horrendous. I'd never seen potatoes dancing in oil like this. Would not go back even if it was for...More

We went here for lunch. It was wonderful. We tried the jagerschintzel as well as the apple strudel and German coffee. Don't miss out on this place. There was not a kids menu that we saw, but my daughter and I were easily able to...More

Quaint homey atmosphere with excellent service. The best schnitzel and goulash. Excellent prices and portions. Only disappointment, they only had apple strudel for dessert( excellent by the way) but after checking out the bakery menu online, I wanted to try the pineapple cake with butter...More

Finding Josie's isn't easy. It's a house sitting on the side of East Trundle Road. But, you MUST find it! Other reviewers have lauded this authentic German restaurant and I can't add too much to their reviews. It's a BYOB and when we had a...More

Loved the schnitzel and potato salad. The market has a lot of wonderful and hard-to-find items. The location is a converted house, so you have to watch for it. I passed it the first time. Run by just 2 folks. Service is friendly but can...More

This is a small operation, but don't let the size fool you. The place has a very casual feel with plastic chairs and only one waitress attending to just a few tables...but who cares?!?! The food was fantastic and everyone in our party of eight...More

Oktoberfest starts on Sept 16 this year so I decided to kick it of with German lunch at Josie's. First, all the food at Josie's is outstanding. Take out and dine-in. This is authentic German fair. "The real deal." I have had several menu items...More

Great German food; authentic and reasonably priced. It was every bit as good as what I have had in Germany and Austria. We greatly enjoyed both the schnitzel and the sausage combination. The decor is spartan and there are only a half dozen or so...More
